How to Insert a Word File Into a PowerPoint


A Microsoft Word document is a popular source of data for a PowerPoint presentation, and it's not difficult to insert your Word document so that PowerPoint parses it into slides. PowerPoint recognizes documents created in outline format and uses the paragraph breaks in the document to begin a new slide, and each new paragraph to create a title for that slide. With correct formatting, the headings are retained and slides are separated as they are intended to be seen.

  • Launch PowerPoint by clicking the application icon. Click "File," then click "New." Select the type of presentation you want to create. Choose "Blank" to create a new presentation from the beginning; "Recent" to open a recently used presentation; "Sample Templates" to open a designed preset; "Themes" to choose a standard or customized pre-made theme, or "My Templates" to open an existing template you have created and saved. Select "New From Existing" to open a dialog box that allows you to navigate to an existing presentation and save changes to create a new presentation. Select " Templates" to download a Microsoft template from the company's website.

  • Click the "Home" tab from the "Slides" group, then click the "New Slide" drill-down arrow. Select "Slides From Outline" at the bottom of the menu.

  • Click the "Insert Outline" text box and specify your file type. Navigate to the Word document with the outline, and click "Insert."
